    I agree entirely, it is tougher. However, for me that presents an opportunity. Plenty of landlords may not fill their property and may have long voids. We know how to avoid those voids, which is a clear opportunity even in an Article 4 area.

    I too recognise the large corporate investment, and here is a rather poor video of me in my kitchen discussing it last Easter.

    You could have at least done the washing up.
    These comments assume you are in England/Wales, and that your last tenancy agreement was dated after 6th April 2007.

    The mug was used in the video filmed just before the filming of this one...!

    I did two back to back, unscripted, and it tells. But then, the idea was to look less estate agent, and more landlord. i.e. A landlord article by a landlord with some letting agent's spectacles instead of estate agent bravado and aviator shades! Lol.

    Anyway, it has had its uses and I don't mind the ribbing!

    What about the mug in the sink?

    I hope Ram doesn't watch your video.

    You called my bluff...

    Ermmm... It makes it feel less staged and more like a real home!

    Out of interest do you get much interest from investors wanting properties sourced/refurbished etc... I was thinking of doing a similar kind of thing myself but was unsure of what demand would be like?

    Should I watch it?

    Has he still got that tie on?
    How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive? Homer Simpson

    No. That was the reason why I watched it. Mrs Phlash has listened to our wise words and hasn't allowed him to wear it this time.

    UCAS have reported that applications are 3% up on last year. So, for me, that comes in as expected and not dropping from a cliff.

    At the risk of making Phlash swap his Spiv tie for a set of golf-clubs and an Honest John hat (whatever they are called - top right), it appears that both of our Student Houses have rented in about a week under his guidance.

    We have supplied Tesco Vouchers as compensation for disturbance, and Tesco insisted on doing 12 vouchers with 12 transactions and 12 different receipts. Bah.

    At least we dodged the smoochy pink kissy-kissy Valentine version.

    Why are there *two* kettles in the vid? Is this on the two dishwashers and no cupboards principle, but for tea?
